  • Choose appropriate products and follow label directions to the letter.
  • Keep up-to-date with your state regulations.

  • Maintain the correct pressure when performing subsoil applications.
  • Calibrate your equipment so you maintain the proper flow rate.

  • Incorporate foaming in your program.
  • Use as many treatment options as practical, such as subsoil, direct wood and gallery treatments, void applications, and baiting systems, among others.
